It’s true that Johnny Depp will be reprising his role, again, for Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and now we’ve got a little rumour that Dr King Schultz is possibly set to take on the lead villain, yes, Mr Christoph Waltz!

Disregarding the fact that no-one knows how we’ve got to five of these films, beyond Captain Jack Sparrow’s endless japery, the first three were lot of fun and they’re not stopping yet. The new one is written by Jeff Nathanson (Catch Me If You Can but also Rush Hour 3) and directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg (both Kon-tiki). There appears to be more rumours around this film than most and for some reason they’re also intent on hiding any spoilers plot-wise, which is impressive if they manage it.

Waltz is reportedly interested by the role as Captain Brand, »
